My company has been moving truckloads and truckloads of generators out to various points on the east coast. Honestly, anyone in a long outage-prone area should have one, but its a mad scramble when the shtf. (my company doesn't make them, just arranges the transport)

You can expect to pay a bit more, but hopefully not get gouged. To get a trucking company to send a guy out into it is typically going to cost triple because a) they prefer not to drive into snowwicanes, b) they're not likely going to get anything coming out so will be driving back "home" empty, and c) there's a chance the end up stuck. Figure that could add $50-250 per genny depending on the size.

Also, make sure you have plenty of fuel, and follow the safety tips others have posted here. Minimize power usage, stay healthy, and help each other out! In the Chicago area, neighbors have a great knack for banding together when we get our occasional 18"+ snow storm. I urge everyone to do the same.

If this thing mixes up the way it looks like it will, its going to be ugly.

I am seeing and reading something totally different, looks like you got the Bloomberg version...


I don't know, you mean the surge height, or tide table?

Tide table is written in stone, and the surge predictions are coming from the National Hurricane Center.

First click the Storm Surge Probabilities on the third row of Icons, then scroll down a bit then enter your prediction,3 feet above high tide, to the see the probability model.

Sandy's going to take out the Northeast. Bayou Corn is going to take out the South. Yellowstone and EQ's are going to take out the West. All we're going to be left with is the "Isthmus of America" somewhere down the middle.

GM corn, HAARP with Chemtrails and New Madrid fault to destroy the Midwest.
Fukushima radiation to destroy much of the northern Hemisphere.....etc. etc.
Some have made 'preparations'.
There were multiple warnings here and there.

Still Not too late to 'Take Action'.

Do you remember that story about all those generators at a home depot in Florida that were marked to go to New Orleans??
Just a week or so ago.
Wonder where they really were destined for.

Here is your first clue,probabilities,not heights.

Actually,

East of Manhattan to Stamford, there is a 80-90% probability that the surge will be >2 feet above high tide.
Same area a 50-60 % probability the surge will be >3 feet above high tide.

This is not my data, it is NOAA data.

If you feel the data is wrong, contact them with your credentials, maybe they will hot shot you to the location so you can oversee all the data and predictions. Maybe you know more than them.

All I have to say is "bring it".

I "like" the people that came to this thread to say "Nothing to worry about, stop the hype, this is nothing." Could you people let me know the upcoming lotto numbers if you're from the future, since the storm is projected to last from Monday til at least Thursday?

Anyway, even if it somehow fizzles out, there's nothing wrong with advising people on things to do in a scenario like this. It's one thing to have a plan in your mind, it might be another for millions of people to have live practice checking supplies, checking first aid. Seeing how people act at the stores when shelves are going empty. Going over a check list that's been gathering dust. Being neighborly and a good human being by checking with people that might need help or reassurance...

Practice never hurts, even if it winds up not being a bad storm. Also, if people stock up, it could be helpful for any other event that may happen in the coming years, and if not, I guess they saved a trip or three to the store over the next couple years.

Good luck out there everyone. Here's to hoping nothing bad happens.

edit: I've read numerous threads like this one over the years and I always find something new worth noting.

Am I the only one that finds the way city slickers always panicking to be amusing? Can you really not survive a while without electricity?

The juice goes out around here, no big deal at all. We know who needs to be checked on, who NEEDS electricity because of old people, sick people or whatnot.

As a person sitting in Florida, I will give a few suggestions:

Books, more books, and finally, books.

Consider the mornings...your going to want coffee and such (break out the grill and old fashioned tea kettles) and get some instant stuff, powdered creamers, etc...you want to wake up early to make due with light.

I say this from having no power for 20 days...was expecting about 2 days...surely you wont be experiencing such a prolonged time without power, but always better to be overprepared.
Many (fairly obvious) suggestions already given (water, water purifiers, rain catchers, etc)..but what people often forget are mental escapes once everything is done...you can get seriously stir crazy after awhile of no television, internet, music, etc..so don't forget to prepare for the extras while prepping for the normal stuff.

I suspect some people may lose a bit of power for a few days...don't panic, things should be alright, but make sure you have various fall back rooms should a stray tornado (a hazard of hurricanes) come knocking. small bathrooms and such, hell, jump in a bathtub if you hear a train coming (sound of a hurricane sounds like a train) and put a board on top.

Anyhow. good luck. Chances are you are going to be just fine. If things are bad, find the nearest FEMA drop zone for water and other necessities you may have forgot...hell, go even just for the social atmosphere.

the storm has already hit many parts of the USA and i dont see those people in complete panic and doom.

This storm will be weak and nothing will happen. Buy your candles (scented ones) but just to make your house smell nice.

Your a hardened and grizzled Canuck. And with the dumpings you lads get out east the last few winters, your gnarly.


Now imagine us in NYC, trying to drive down 5th avenue, we would be totally out of our element.
Could we even drive our dually diesels down the road there?

Some of these fine folks only have ever known the city.

If any want a report in Northern Utah (Which could be the central west of the USA), the only thing we got is a large snowstorm and a couple of power outages along the way. It's becoming winter again, but this time, it's packing a harder punch than before.

I am originally from upstate NY though

Only been up here around six years. Not really that much of a difference between here and there are far as the winters go. A bit more windy sometimes up here, that is the biggest difference.

The summers up here are better, I can walk to the ocean


There is almost no spring or fall here though, that makes me sad. I love NY spring and fall days.

The hurricane part of this storm has not yet hit mainland:

www.wunderground.com...

It is the converging of the hurricane and the noreaster that is going to be a major issue.
